In Progress : WANGATABUTHI COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL – 4 New Classrooms

About the Project

A new site for ABW, Wangatabuthi Comprehensive School has poor studying conditions and is in need of new classrooms. The school now has mud buildings for every grade, and one stone structure onsite. The mud classrooms are extremely dark and compact, with a very limited lifespan, requiring regular maintenance. New classrooms would give the school permanency, provide a conducive learning environment, and protect teachers, students and materials from the elements.
